Bird's-eye lithograph view of Clarksburg, West Virginia, 23 x 30 1/4 inches, picturing the buildings of the town on either side of Elk Creek, with bridges, railroads, and street names, large inset views of the "North View Addition" (4 1/2 x 9 inches), "Interior View of Wells & Haymakers Drug Store" (2 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches), and "J.F. Osborn's Sons, Pioneer Iron Works" (2 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches), and 11 smaller insets of individual commercial and residential buildings (each 2 1/2 x 3 inches), nine of them in a row across the top; keys to 21 buildings are printed in the lower margin.
